    I had an issue with a 6513 that had an error in the log file saying the TCAM utilization had hit a threshold and was currently at 98% utilization.

    What is TCAM? I did a Show TCAM Counts but that really didn't show me anything that I could understand.

    I am going to guess, but I think it is the memory for the switching engine for a Layer3 switch. But I could be totally wrong...8)

    Sure we would... but mostly on things that can't be found easily by searching Google. It's a tech's best friend.

    One thing that people would still post about is opinions on things. For example, it's helpful to discuss things like:
    - what model of wireless router (or hard drive or video card or processor or mobo) to buy
    - best methods to secure a particular OS
    - news articles or other things of technical interest
    - questions about job searches and career development, including what certifications to pursue
    - humorous stories
    - general community bonding - happy birthdays, anniversaries, achievements, etc.

    As you can see, there's tons to post about other than "Fix this technical problem for me". :D
